The department of state seems to
have recognized this' to a certain ex
tent, for it has sent to some xf the

the professions are over-crowded, but
the consular service is not likely to
be so for some time to come, now that
appointments and promotions in It are
not dependent on political favor and

that the home-keeping young have

When a man deserts from the United
States army the stigma "sticks. And
so it should. A soldier who some time
ago took "French' leave" now wants
to reenlist in the army and redeem
himself. But he i& down on the offi
cial records as a deserter, and while
that inscription stands he cannot be
accepted as a recruit He has applied
to the war department to have the
record expunged, but the request has
been denied, it being. the irrevocable
decision of the department to.make no
change ia 'the, records when 'they are
in accord with the proved facts. So

Of all the enterprising 'things done
In Chicago none surpasses the recent
act of a widower with four young
children to look after. He needed a
wife and they needed a mother, so the
man wooed the unmarried women of
his neighborhood, but found none will
ing to assume so many domestic cares
at once. Therefore he placed a -placard
in his window one day, bearing the in
scription, "A widower, living within,
wants a wife. Ladies, if .you want a
husband, inquire within at once," and
remained at home to meet his callers.
The interesting part of the story is
that the callers came, and the man is
likely to find what his children need,
if indeed he has not already found a

The one safe way to handle any pistol

Mrs. Fenton Ottley. one of the lead
ing women in public reform movements
in the south. Is a charter member of the
Atlanta Woman's club, and has been its
president. She has served also as secre
tary of the General Federation of Wom
an's Clubs for the state of Georgia, as
first chairman of the. state industrial com
mission, which did .much work for the
reform of child labor abuses, as chairman
of the state commission on arts and
crafts, and as one of Georgia's commit
tee of three to consider the color line
question. Mrs. Ottiey is a Mississippian
by .birth and rearing, but has resided in
Atlanta since her marriage, her husband
being a banker of that city.)
The possibilities of Georgia pine
are being exploited from one end of
the country to the other, but what
thought is being given to the possibil
ities of the Georgia boy?" So wrote
President Branson, of the state nor
mal school at Athens, Ga., a few
years ago. The educational renais
sance now beginning in the south is
based upon recognition of that great
.est of "waste products," undeveloped
human life, of which so much exists
in the states south of Mason and
Since most of the people live In
the country the average population
of Georgia, for instance, being 35 to
the square mile, with 1,500,000 per
sons living in one-room cabins it is
easy to see that the country school
must be the evangel. to the people.
In its Improvement lies the solution
of the problem of general social bet
terment. The tremendous and sys
tematic crusade now being organized
throughout the southern states by the
southern educational board purposes
working almost entirely through this
agency, devoting itself to the perfec
tion of the rural school and such nor
mal institutions as furnish teachers
for it This field of endeavor Is cer
Out of 700,000 children of school
age in Georgia barely 280,900 go to
school 100 days in the year. Eight
months schools are the exception, the
rule being five months, while many
communities do not have school long
er than three months each year. In
these schools, when existent, the
poorest and most meager instruction'
is too often given, owing to the poor
pay of teachers.
All this seems in a fair way to be
revolutionized by the efforts of the
southern people, spurred on and en
couraged by the southern educational
board. In view of this great move
ment in the country schools it is in
teresting to note that the forerunner
of the model country school, as
planned by educational enthusiasts,
was initiated and carried on success
fully by the clubwomen of the state
of Georgia a few years ago. By their
efforts and under their charge two
model country schools were main
tained five months the first year in
rural districts. On visiting them a
committee of the southern education
al board declared them "ideal." These
schools, begun as an experiment and
an object lesson, have been carried
on since then with pronounced sue-,
Their history is interesting, particu
larly for the striking example it af
fords of what may be the outcome of
an active and whole-hearted coopera
tion between the representative wom
en who make ap the clubs of the va
rious states and the educators ana
educational experts of their sections.
President Branson, of the Georgia
state normal school, had addressed to
Mrs. Lindsay Johnson, then president
ot the State Federation of Woman's
Clubs,- a letter in which he asked if
that assocuttoa would-undertake to
raise $1,000 ,fbr the nuuateaaace lor
five months of a model coaaty.achool
which should furnish an object les
son of what a county school should
and might be. The Federation of
Women's Clubs, a body of 6,000 rep
resentative women, having been long
devoted to efforts for educational bet
terment, and, as Mr. Branson knew,
particularly interested in the problem
of the rural school, at once accepted
the suggestion and pledged the requi
The school was to be a part of the
county system, its location to be de
cided by competition among the
county superintendents of the state,
the school to be awarded to the high
est bidder and the federation pledging
Itself to supply the difference be
tween this highest bid and the neces
sary $1,000. .All the money was to
be placed in the bands of the Geor
gia federation, and the school was
to be inaugurated by the federation,
and remain under its control. Mr.
Branson, on his part, pledged to un
dertake the technical -direction of the
So much interest was aroused, and
the bids of the counties ran so high,
that it was found possible to supple
ment the efforts of two communities,
instead of one, with the sum raised
by the federation. 'Hence, while
Oanielsville, Madison county, with a
bid of $700, secured the first school,
Watters district, Floyd county, was
able, with $650, to secure a second.
The tragedy of the situation lay in
two splendid bids, of $500 from Bar
tow county and $450 from Rabun
county, the latter -the most mountain
ous county in Georgia. To those who
understand the meaning of these
guarantees from such sections there
is infinite pathos in the thought of
such sums as these having been gath
ered for such a cause and in vain!
One thousand dollars more would
have done noble service. v
The two sections securing the
schools furnished contrasting but ex
cellent fields for ,the social experi
ment Danielsville, the county seat
of Madison county, is a typical village
of the best character. Its people are,
many of them, educated and refined,
but the county is essentially rural,
since only one edge of it is crossed by
a railroad, Danielsville itself being
six miles distant from it About 500
people center at Danielsville. The best
of them threw themselves heart and
soul into the effort not only to secure
the first model school, but to guaran
tee its perpetuation. The president
of the county board of education, a
well-known lawyer, besides his other
efforts, threw his home open to the
teachers, who were thus assured the
comforts of daily life.
Watters district Floyd county, is a
"crossing" of the Southern railroad,
just out of the little city of Rome.
Its people are rougher than the coun
try folk, and the life led there by the
three young teachers was hard enough
to furnish missionary conditions.
, Both schools thrived surprisingly.
The people,' who looked upon it at
first as a sort of vagary of their su
perintendent and the 'clubwomen,
soon became deeply interested in the
plan. The school at Danielsville,
opening with 86 pupils, very soon had
125, a great' number of children com
ing In from the county to board. At
Watters about 80 remained in at
tendance. At both places a kitchen and work
shop were 'added to the schoolhouse.
which belonged to the county, and
about $200 was spent in permanent
improvements. The success of the ex
periment may be gathered from 'the
fact that the five-month schools, main
tained as an experiment, were re
placed by eight months sessions in
both counties the succeeding year.
The plan is that each school shall
become a blooming garden, the gen
eral headquarters of ,the people, of J
the neighborhood, where library and
reading rooms shall help to ren
der it attractive and necessary to
patrons, as well as to pupils.
It is safe to say that these two
model schools in purpose, plan and
detail will be the model indeed for
thousands of others which the new
educational movement in the south
will produce. That, they have been
successfully initiated, maintained and
administered by women furnishes a
fair answer to that already rapidly
vanishing question: "What can
women's clubs do?

A Crystal Weddlna.
The request from a reader for a
crystal wedding has been received.
This is the fifteenth wedding anni
versary which has been-reached. If it
is possible, to have the invitations de
livered by a messenger they may be
on glass plates with the lettering one
in ink; but of, course, engraved invita
tions should be used for a formal, or
large "affair. Dolhe plates up in
white paper, tie with, white ribbon and
seal with wax. The dining room table
may be made 'a thing of beauty by
spreading a white net cloth over white
satin, powdering all with either white
rosebuds, white carnations or white
chrysanthemums, with a tracery of
delicate vines and ferns, then sprinkle
all with diamond dust.
The glass icicles of all lengths that
should be procurable now owing to the
proximity of Christmas (they are used
for tree ornaments) would be charm
ing hung from the chandelier and gas
jets. They sparkle beautifully and
show all the prismatic colors. Use
white candles in glass holders and
serve a white supper. The menu
might include cream of celery soup,
white fish turbot broiled chicken
breasts, potato balls, Brussels sprouts,
white grape, apple and nut salad on
white lettuce hearts, and a dessert
' which is new and very good. Make it
by cutting marshmallows, blanched al
monds and candied ginger, cherries
and citron into small bits. Mix all
with whipped cream, serve very cold
in tall glasses with small white iced
cakes. The hostess should be gowned
in white with cut crystal tiimming.
After supper there might be'a pro
gram .of wedding music. Including the
"Lohengrin" march, Mendelssohn and
Jensen's wedding music; also the
Swedish march used for bridal proces
sions. A pretty conceit is a large
wedding bell made of cotton covered
with diamond dust and a fringe of
icicles under which the couple stand
to receive congratulations.

Design for Bridge Bag. Bridge Bag.
Here is a dainty little bag intended for holding money, handkerchief,
gloves, or any small article. It is in white satin, embroidered with silver se
quins and beads, and is lined with very pale shell-pink satin. Small silver
rings are sewn on the outside about 1& inch below the edge, and white sa'Sa
ribbon is threaded through them. The bag measures 5 inches wide and 7
inches-deep. The ribbon should be one inch wide. Satin of good quality should
be used as it will keep clean lenger than a cheap make, and when soiled can
ho cleaned to look like'new.

greater variety -of novel features and

Each cloth has a perfectly plain cen

is outlined by a handsome border;
then comes a plain space about half
the width of the border, and then a
second border the same width as the
first, the square corners being filled
in with the plain. The effect is really
much handsomer than may be imag

satin; others are 'scattered with dots
